World Day of Peace
The World Day of Peace is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church dedicated to universal peace, celebrated each year on the 1st of January. This day has been celebrated since 1968, meaning this year will be its 53rd year of celebration. Many previous popes such as Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II, made important declarations of social doctrine on this day, regarding topics such as human rights, economic development, and the right to life. Last year Pope Francis theme was the idea that “politics must serve peace” (Vatican News), which is an increasingly important idea in the globalizing world. Each year the Pope’s message is sent to national and international leaders around the world, in order for them to support these ideals, and work together to create a more peaceful future for all.
